Last month, 6-year-old Layla Lester mistook a bride in Akron, New York for the Disney princess Cinderella.

However, the Cinderella in the viral Facebook post turned out to be a bride taking photos on her wedding day. 

The photographer captured the entire adorable encounter between little Layla and the bride and the story took over social media.

According to Walt Disney World, a GoFundMe account raised money for Layla and her family to travel to Walt Disney World Resort and meet the “real” Cinderella and other Disney princesses.

Tuesday morning, Layla received her own princess makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Cinderella’s Castle. 

All dolled up herself, Layla received a special meeting with Cinderella herself!

“When she hugged Cinderella’s arm and she was touching her face and her dress, it just, it warms your heart, because there aren’t that many moments that Layla gets excited about,” Layla’s mother.

“So that she was that excited about and that tuned in to Cinderella it just, it means a lot.”
